primarily revolving around use of water for cherry re or. ~ [speaker not understood] cherry lake not normally used for drinking water supply. they're only there as a stand by supply. we can take water from cherry through a conveyance called the lower cherry aqueduct and bring it into our supply system. that water then has to be filtered at the sunol valley treatment plant unlike hetch hetchy which does not have to be filtered. lower cherry was built in 1914. here is a photo portion of that. it is largely an open channel and what damaged in the rim fire. so, we're engaged in a project to actually rehabilitate the lower cherry acwe edit so we can bring water of a good quality down to the system and deliver it to the bay area ~. that back up supply could become valuable a the drought continues on into the future. so, we have one contract with flat iron, west for the
rehabilitation project on the lower cherry aqueduct. once we get the water to the bay area we have to do some minor improvements at the san antonio pump station, chemical piping improvements. these projects were on our books going forward to do in the capital program over the next two to three years. but to make sure we can fully reliably filter the water from the lower cherry aqueduct we need to make improvement in each short order as well ~. we have a contract with monterey mechanical to perform those improvements. together these give us access to an extra 200,000 acre feet of supply, which is almost a whole 'nother year of water that we could have to rely on if drought continues in the future. and i'm happy to answer any questions about these. >> thank you very much. no comments or questions. mr. rose, why don't we go to your report on both items, please. >> yes, mr. chairman.

[gavel] >> just sticking with the puc, are you aware of these recommendations? are you in agreement with those? >> yes, we are in agreement with the recommendations. >> okay, thank you very much. so, supervisor mar, can we have a motion to accept the budget analyst recommendations on items 5 and 6? >> so moved. >> take that without objection. and approve the underlying

that complex has needs for cellular and emergency communications and this item is to facilitate that through installation of what i'll call the brains of a cellular and emergency communication network. it's really on a localized basis. it serves the complex or two buildings at this location at third and mission rock. it is a license agreement. it's a ten-year license agreement. it allows sublicensing. that is intended -- it has tight controls on sublicensing, but this works quite nicely for the city and that is a capital investment by the licensee of over 1-1/2 million dollars to install this capital. they recoup those costs primarily through sublicensing of other cellular vendors. there are no costs to the city associated with this. that's why we don't have a budget analyst report.
it enables not only critical cellular communications within the building given we have public safety officials, that's crucial, but also it enables further emergency communications. and other point to point connections that we are creating with the public safety building. as i mention it's a ten-year license agreement. there are two five-year renewals. there are no costs to the city with respect to the installation or the ongoing license. happy to answer any questions. i also have an at&t representative here as well if you have any detailed questions. >> okay, thank you, mr. updike. seeing no questions, there is no budget analyst report, so, we'll open this up to public comment. anybody wish to comment on item number 7? seeing none, public comment is closed.
